STUDENTS CURATE STUDENTS

 The School of Museum of Fine Arts has chosen:
The 2014 winning Students Curate Students proposal is “The Thing We Carry: Objects in America” (working title) by Museum School students Reneé M. Browne (MFA 2013) and Lydia Harris (MFA 2014).
Saying of their exhibition concept, Browne and Harris’s statement says: “Being members of a society that promotes individualism, we often satisfy our need to belong be acquiring objects that provide a material connection to others. These objects take on a value beyond their utility, becoming symbols of our identities in terms of characteristics such as status, gender, and race. Through these photographs, the five artists we have chosen present various arrangements of the personal objects that become physical representations of their owners.”
 “The Thing We Carry: Objects in America” will be on view at the Museum of Fine Arts Courtyard Gallery, March 8 – August 17, 2014.
